Platforms, not platform
It strikes me that given the deep emphasis that people have had on the Facebook platform, it’s important to explore what other opportunities are out there to build compelling experience off of pre-existing social information and traffic.

Over the last couple months, I’ve become very interested in branching out from my understanding of Facebook, and looking at other APIs that are available, like the Firefox browser, MMOGs (and Second Life), Instant messaging, Maps, and other platforms.

Putting together this conference has been a good way for me to learn about the topic.
